troubling. a white house official told nbc news it's a terrible way to run the country. but the aide gave no indication president obama would veto a temporary extension if this is how congressional republicans want to govern, so be it. they already have an approval rating of, let's see, 14% from the american people. can they do better than that? maybe they just want to see how low it can go. the writing was on the wall yesterday when republican budget chairman paul ryan told members they need to be prepared for a debt ceiling increase. the attitudes from republican leaders are a lot different today. senator jon cornyn of texas wrote an op-ed said it may be necessary to partially shut down the government in order to secure the long-term fiscal well-being of the country. now cornyn tells the chronicle editorial board we will raise the debt ceiling. we are not going to default on our ded debt. two years ago, they were gloating over their debt ceiling hostage strategy. >> no president in the near future, maybe in the distant future, will be able to get the debt ceiling increased without a rei

[applause] >> well thank you mayor lee and let me just say as the federal transit administrator it's great to be in a federal transit city. as many people know a rail connection was promised to the people of union square and chinatown going on two decades. they made that promise because this quarter is the most densely populated quarter in the entire western united states that doesn't have an adequate rail connection and that promise was made because we have the opportunity here to cut the commute for tens of thousands of people everyday in half by this investment. the vast majority of the people don't own a car. they depend on transit. well today through president obama's leadership, secretary lahood le
president obama to know, i feel like our country is divided. we need to come together as one. i get to talk to kids. the lady, the mother of that evil kid that shot those kids should have had enough common sense to think, hey, you know what i should be a responsible gun owner and take these guns and lock them out. out of the house and what i want people to remember is our flag is made out of the blood of patriots, do not give up your rights because when you give up your rights you're going to fight with blood to get the rights back. and that second amendment has given us every other amendment and as a sportsman, as a cop, guns are not the problem. we need to become a better country, need to become better parents and responsible. if we're responsible a
that will carry our country through the next 50 years. we owe it to our country and to our people. chris: howard, everybody's talking about what kind of approach is obama going to take this second term. is he going to be conciliatory? or is he going to be mr. tough guy? >> he wants to get things done by being tough and even confrontation. in the first term he tried to change the tone of washington as the outcider, sort of by a combination of aloofness and steady thought. now it's in your face. and he's going to be that way with joe biden at his side. because this is how he validates his presidency. things like health care have to be implemented. things like gun laws and so forth have to be passed. he's decided that the way to get it done is to confront the republican party which is in a weakened state right now. chris: if he hits them hard, charles krauthammer said he's doing this not just to get his goals achieved but to crack the other party. to force them to choose and take the suburbanites as i said in the opening and force them to sit at the side where the hard right or somewhere in the cen
country come together in president obama's second term? that's ahead as we continue our special coverage of this inauguration weekend. >>> is there such a thing, is there a second term curse? gloria borger is back with us along with a couple guys who saw their guy sworn in for two terms. let's talk about second terms. paul, i want to start with you first. your president came before his so we'll go in order and gloria can interrupt at any moment. >> i will. >> look, your president, bill clinton, had a great economy and then the monica lewinsky scandal and impeachment came along. and his agenda went off the tracks. your president, the opposition to the iraq war was growing. he won re-election but it kept growing and katrina came along and it undermined his second term. what lesson did you learn from a second term that could help this president? >> well, the president's problem was personal, not policy -- >> there are so many inappropriate things i could think to answer that question. >> but it's a completely different thing for that reason. but -- >> he got a budget. >> he got a balanced b
it, they're now accusing president obama of using his position as president to lead the country. the horror! >> i'm afraid that president obama may have this king complex sort of developing and we're going to make sure it doesn't happen. >> we've completely lost our checks and balances. the congress needs to hold the president accountable for the decisions he's making right now. >> as i said before, i'm going to arm all of my deputies. a month ago, i said that before this, with automatic weapons and semi-automatic weapons. we're going to be able to fight back. i don't care what they say from washington. >> jennifer: actually, think about the demographic politics of the last election. what do all of the broad array of critics not just those ones but what do they have in common? aside from the obvious -- they're all white. they're all male. now, of course, not every white male thinks the same way that they do. but it is notable that this virulent anti-regulation bunch the folks who have been the first shakers not just rush limbaugh, but the folks in congress too they're made up of
. on the other hand, with that kind of agenda, i absolutely believe we can change this country as president obama talked about in 2008. the change you can believe in, the change you work for. >> what has president obama done for labor in these last four years? >> well, i think he's tried to do quite a bit. i think in his heart he definitely supports, you know, working families. part of the outcome piece is what gets through the u.s. congress. so he definitely supported health care bill much more like speaker pelosi than what we ended up getting through the senate finance committee, onto the senate floor and eventually adopted a year later. he definitely supported workers' rights legislation. he definitely supported much more agressive moves to stop the foreclosures. he definitely supported climate change. so part of this is really -- you know, we would love to see more active white house support for these democracy initiatives so that the change that i'm sure he still believes in has some reality to it instead of just on the back bench somewhere. >> did he fight hard enough? i don't want to put y
? >> the house republicans and barack obama profoundly disagree on the direction of the country. they disagree on moral, cultural, fiscal and social issues. that's-- >> i don't want a divided answer. i want who is the bigger or biggest culprit? >> well, obama proposes and they reject. >> he can't bear to say it's the republicans' fault. the tea party republicans are obviously the fault in the house. and the senate republicans bear the brunt of abusing the filibuster, the point where they've used it 385 times while reid has been the leader. it was used once when lyndon johnson was the speaker and that was the great civil rights battle. it's a total misuse and abuse of power. >> harry reid should not get a free pass. he has prevented republicans from ever offering amendments on a lot of these important votes. his management of the senate is imperious and when republicans have allowed things to move to a vote, not filibuster them, he still prohibited republican amendments so he bears at least half the blame for what's going on in the senate. >> this is a democracy. it shouldn't work that way. >>
mr. president? like janet jackson song. obama said he wanted to be a chance for regional president unfortunately the changes i have seen for us is not so good. the country we assumed the paycheck gets bigger overtime is the opposite. median household income is lower. 51,190 now it is 50,054. strangely it declined more after the recession than during. a fluke that feels like a normal. the numbers of americans working are down and unemployment rate is up seven point* 8%. entitlement programs are one step closer to being broke. 2041 was the forecast for bankruptcy now 2037 in medicare's 2024. a jittery 292009, 10.6 trillion was the debt $34,000 for every american today 16 point* 4 trillion witted $52,000 for each and every american that is the legacy of our children and grandchildren don't need. barack obama has been a transracial president who transformed our country but not the way i like. we were excited about the future before with headwinds but now we are burdened by a bigger government, more far reaching to be in the doctor's office and on the gun rack. what have you done for us
is clearly tyrant. rand paul said we don't like kings in this country. we don't like kings and king obama the first signed an executive order today, okay. that is countermanning the second amendment. is he going to be impeached? s but there are people calling for that? >> there are people calling for it and it won't happen. >> stephen: clinton was. >> that was entirely different. >> stephen: that wasn't executive over reach it was under reach. >> if you know what i mean. it was not clear who was reaching for whom in that case. >> stephen: i understand. that's how he got off. [ laughter ] in more ways than one. all right. so -- [ laughter ] -- you covered -- there one of these presidents that you covered that you like more than others that impress youed you me than other? >> they all had different qualities. >> stephen: oh, come on! there's got be. you are the most evenhanded person in the world. >> i'm fascinated by people who first of all get into the arena and run successfully for the presidency of united states, make them an historic figure, occupy the most powerful office in the world
. these the number of public schools with armed personnel. 28,300 to around the country. and the reaction, the obama administration, my god, the nra has lost its mind to even suggest such a thing. lou: it is interesting because just by coincidence, i was in israel when the new town shooting took place, and the next morning hours touring the facility where they train security guards for their schools. they put those guards in after that school shooting in the 1970 and worked. in this country after columbine president clinton got funding for the cops in school programs which pays for many of those two. : thousand police. in other localities, private firms, and school boards volunteers provide security. why was it a smart idea when the israelis did it and a reasonable idea when bill clinton endorsed it and the insane idea when we suggested it? the fact is that america's parents want their kids protected, and there are two real basic problems here. what is the breakdown of our mental health system. almost all of these shooters are people he should not be allowed to possess any firearm. we have been urgi
? in 2004, who was leader of the party? nobody even heard of barack obama? what you have is a changing country. >> whenever a party loses a presidential election i understand that but what i think you are overlooking is countries change in 12 years. the minority vote is much more substantial. the younger americans are not engaged. they don't really pay attention. and they are going on whim and they are going on trend. the media is much more rabidly pro-left now than it was. three things have changed. and i agree whenever a party wins, they're going to take some momentum into the next year. i think it's changed america now. >> i think you are wrong. every time a party loses you get a book coming out saying the permanent republican majority. the permanent liberal majority. nothing in the country is permanent. what's important to remember is this republicans republicansn a beating. liberalism i think we would agree, which is all tax and all spend will not work he or she stein once said if something can't go on it won't go on it will stop. it all stopped in europe. you can only go on spend
the country vulnerable. >> gregg: thanks. >> arthel: president obama shaking up his cabinet as he gets set to kick off his second term but three of his top picks could face tough nomination. chuck hagel will have to answer questions about past comments he made about israel and gays. and john brennan picked to lead the c.i.a. will have to answer questions to link to enhanced interrogation techniques during the bush administration. jeff sessions and others coming out against jack lew for treasury-secretary. sessions says he believes lew 2010 budget testimony before congress was, quote, the most colossal misrepresentation in history. listen. >> i just had one vote on it. i do think the senate needs to push back against this idea that people can come before our committee and say anything they want to inaccurately and two years later want to be promoted to a higher office in our country really in the world. the secretary of treasury and we shouldn't treat that lightly. he needs to be held to account in my opinion. >> arthel: in order to get these nominees appointed, will president obama l have
, president obama and the use of enhanced interrogation uses, which is not needed to keep our country safe. a few months after taking office, the president traveled to the national archives am aware he discussed how national security to card a delicate balance to train secrecy and transparency. he pledged to share as much information as possible with the american people so that they can make informed judgments and hold us accountable. he has consistently asked of those on national security team to be as open and candid as possible as well. earlier this year, attorney general holder discussed how our efforts are rooted in our strength adherence to the law, including the legal authorities that allow us to pursue members of al qaeda, including u.s. citizens, and using technologically advanced weapons. in addition, jake johnson at the department of defense had addressed the legal basis for our military efforts against al qaeda. the general counsel for the cia has discussed how the agency operates under the u.s. law. there was a lecture given two years ago. they noted that u.s. practices, inclu
makeover project there. here you see the president and mrs. obama staining a book shelf. the president spoke to the volunteers on this project. >> as i look around the room, i see friends from all across the country, people who have been such great supporters of ours, but more importantly, everybody here, adults to children, understand the importance of giving back. >> the vice president and his family also participated in the national day of service. they filled care packages for deployed servicemen and women. mr. biden said the troops overseas need to know that we back at home remember them. rick? >> rick: hundreds much people turning out on the national mall for this day of service. what did they do? >> they were numerous booths set up under a huge tent on the mall for people to do on site service projects such as make cards for hospitalized and foster care children, or create a mural for a dc area school. here is what some of the participatants said about today's events. >> i think it's important for everyone to know that we got to give back to our community. we're in this together
in the neighboring african country in mali . president obama, the words sounded like a preview. we will continue to work with our partners, to combat the scourge of terrorism in that region. more to come, harris. >> you answered my second part of the question of what happens now. we look forward to hearing. >>> and jerl sits next to mali. the pentagon answered calls from france to help fight. but now african leaders france wants them to fight to take over for the french forces to root out terrorist in mali, it seems like they need money, plan ammunition among them. the u.s. has been giving intelience information and logistical support to the french. the french war planes are bombing the rebel bases. the intervention started last week. >> here at home debate over gun control heating up. second for -- support for the second amendment. pro gun groups are urging americans to show up at gun stores and ranges to show support for gun ownership. brand new fox polling show overwhelming support. the last fox news poll only 28 percent of the people believe that banning crimes would reduce croim. 58 percent
he subscribes he's tremendously persuasive. i don't think his advocacy of obama care and the health care bill supports that. >> it did pass. >> it did pass with chicanery but he did not move the country which is what he's trying to do with the nra. obama's approval rating 52%, the nra's approval rating 54%. >> congress is 17%. >> since gun control came back to the top of the agenda, the nra has acquired 250,000 new members so we'll find out. you saw by putting up the statements from some of the democratic senators that there's a resistance in the democratic caucus because they have six seats up next time. >> all of those senators, i showed. >> in states where mr. obama got less than 42% of the votes, the republicans need to control the senate six seats. >> how hard does he push this, cokie? >> i think he pushes parts of it. the assault weapons ban is obviously a huge problem and that's what most people pushing back against. although it is interesting with the increased number of women in congress that it might have a better shot than 1994, 29% of republican men voted for the assault
conference. >> obama and clinton believed china and other countries resisting a pollution standards agreement were meeting in secret. >> president obama and secretary clinton were talking kind of alone, you know, in some hallway and he said let's go. and she said, let's go. >> so they kind of barged in. >> they kind of barged in. they said hey, guys, what are you doing? >> we're here. >> what's going on here. we're here and we got the deal done. >> secretary clinton has logged just shy of a million miles as secretary of state and usually on board, cnn foreign affairs reporter aleece labbit. >> this is the press cabin where the journalists or traveling press sit. as we move forward it's different. >> that's where all the action takes place. a lot of communications equipment. this right here is the line of death. >> what's the line of death? >> this is where all the classified material is and so they always say to journalists can't come in because they have this classified bag, but let's cross it. >> let's cross it. >> and this is where the secretary does all of her business. this is -- >> this
that level of carnage or worse every single day across our country. one week from today president obama will take the oath of office for his second term, and unless we take action during those four years some 48,000 americans will be killed with guns. >> perhaps sensing that grave urgency, the president said he received vice president biden's gun violence task force's reg recommendations today, one day earlier than planned, and he said he'll announce more details later in the week. let's get right to our panel. with us from washington msnbc political analyst karen finney, and democratic strategist julian epstein. karen, if i might begin with you, the president of the nra, david keene, says an assault weapons ban would never make it through congress and that any limits on high capacity ammunition clips would also fail and larry pratt h executive director of the gun owners of america, says background checks are a complete waste of time. so why don't we all now go home and look forward to the next mass shooting. >> yeah. we might as well. you know what? and while we're at it let's give up
the country and around the globe. seven americans taken hostage by terrorist yesterday in algeria. things getting scary in that part of the world. here at home, poor president obama can't win for losing. yesterday he was slammed by critics for inviting four kids from around the country to join him on stage as he talked about his proposals for gun control. in other words it's okay to mow down 20 first graders in newtown, connecticut but it's not okay to invite four kids to the white house to talk about how to keep them safe from guns. these people are nuts! all right. more about that and a whole lot more. but first here we go. the latest, today's current news update lisa ferguson standing by out in los angeles. early good morning to you lisa. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. 23 executive actions and a big to do list for congress all in the works now after president obama's announcement yesterday on the future of gun control. not surprisingly, not everyone so keen on what the president had to say yesterday. some republican state legislators have their own plan and that is to secede from
a country. to your president what could president obama do if he wants to have a legacy of which he can be proud. give a speech, a major public policy address to the eradication of poverty in our country. he's going to be inaugurated for a second term on the king's holiday. how dare any president on the king holiday stand with king's monument just a few blocks down the street and not talk about the issue that he gave his life for, the poor. you quoted him beautifully and he talked about that being the passion of his life. one, he has to give a major public policy address on what he'll do as our leader to eradicate poverty and then bring the experts together and craft this plan that you referenced earlier to cut policy in 10 years and eradicate it in 25. >> john: i'm depressed how many people forget that dr. king stood against anti-militarism before he died. do you think if the leaders lead people will follow, and it will be finding a way to get people vote and more importantly, voting in their own interest. >> i think vote something a key component. i preach motor registration and motor
contact sent me three letters from kids from around the country. one little boy from georgia asked president obama to stop violence. an 11-year-old girl julia wrote she couldn't bear the not of losing her brothers and sisters -- the thought of losing her brothers and sisters to guns. at this morning's announcement, president obama is expected to push for better enforcement for existing gun laws. he can require keeping data on where guns are. the government stopped keeping track nine years ago. when it comes to the background, president obama can push for more sharing of information and prosecution of people who try to buy guns illegally. the president will need congress's approval to get sweeps changes made and that will not be an easy feat, especially with the nra prodding supporters in congress. we'll tang a look at the nra -- take a look at the nra's new ad tackling president obama's gun proposals when i see you next. >> and ktvu will bring you live coverage. he's scheduled to make that announcement at 8:55 this morning our time. ktvu will be streaming the president's remarks li
-blown national health care system. >> no, we can't. every country that tried the health care system experienced higher cost or less health care. with obama care, it is a back door in a single payer system. of course, it costs more. >> mark tage. this is what he has plan obama care is not a single payer plan which is national health care. is that what it is turning into? >> i think it is going to have to be a single payer plan. will this reduce the deficit, no. is your goal here to provide health care to people? >> the private sector has not done a good job of >> it is going two or three times the rate of inflation . >> but you are saying that a government take over of health care would be cheaper and more efficient than the private sector. >> i think more people would be covered and cost would be lowered. >> emac, is there any way to prove that contention in >> no, i hear what mark is saying. this congress person said we shouldunize doctors . we have a veterans administration that doing better. for the one size fits all approach, we don't have the same demographics as britain or canada can thos

's been an american hero. he's sacrificed a lot for his country. i almost-- he votes for obama twice. i don't know how anybody that identifies himself as a conservative can say that they're still a republican and vote for obama? >> most liberal president we've had, you know, modern history. what's your reaction to this? >> well, i'm also greatly saddened. i've been a supporter, my father, roy ennis and i, our organization have been great boosters and supporters of general powell in the past, and he is an american hero, and we've been proud of him in the past and we're not proud of him in this occasion, and i think that clearly general powell is out of the mainstream with the republican party and unfortunately, i mean, look, you can have a different point of view and a different point of view and still be in the same party, but to inject the race card, which by the way, he's been a victim of in the past. >> sean: that's true. >> he's been called, he's been called a house negro by harry belafonte because he worked for the administration. for general powell to inject the same type of race
to my country. in fairness, obama announced the closing of guantanamo and dick cheney said it's a horrible idea, but these are the worst of the worst, a statement that was false. 40 of the people had been cleared by the bush administration. 40 more won habeas cases. peter dick cheney was lying or did not know the facts. the obama administration did not take them on, in any event. then they want to take that group into virginia, frank wolf said don't do that, and they backed down, the obama administration backed down. then congress said you cannot take them. what he's got to do is grow a pair of big ones, but he's got to have a plan and these guys to work it. there are problems, but it's doable, and he has the power to do it. it will take a few months, but he could do it. >> there's no political value in doing it. >> it has to be moral. >> it's your legacy. >> the lady behind you. >> where am i going? >> sorry. i'm from the constitution project on the detainee treatment. colonel davis managed the dark times yesterday. i was wondering, there are a number of individuals who have

's national day of service. people all over the country are doing the same thing the obamas are doing right now, volunteering in their community on this martin luther king holiday weekend. this national day of service going on here on the national mall where the president is -- it's an elementary school. >> it is an elementary school here in washington. i believe he's doing a little bit similar to his service project last time around four years ago because i believe he had a paint brush in his hand that time. but it looks like he's helping -- what i've seen so far, helping to complete an overhaul of a school in washington, d.c. he has some very good volunteers. i believe they are with city year and they're working to, you know, maybe do a little painting, a little varnishing of a bookcase, john. >> it is the burrville elementary school in northeast washington there. i have to say mrs. obama sporting a little more form than the president painting that bookcase. >> she also has a pair of gloves. maybe he's worried about getting dirty. we lost the shot. that's okay. a lot going on today in the
i'm looking at is the country's expectations. when president obama was first inaugurated, he became -- and a lot of his staffers will tell you this -- sort of a victim of the high expectations that the public had for him. now the expectations are kind of lower, so the folks in the administration are saying, well, if the expectations are lower, maybe we can overperform a little instead of underperforming like people thought we did last time around. so they're kind of looking for the glass half full part of this. equation. >> one of the things going on beneath numbers indicates a sort of tsunami of hyperpartisanship that this administration has tried to operate in. it's a stark partisan divide. 76% of democrats thinks things are going well in the country. only 28% of republicans feel that way. so that is really a reminder of the divides at work. >> i think what we don't know right now, one of the big mysterie mysteries, is where this economy is truly going. we hear from a number of people like jamie dimon has been arguing, we get a grand bargain this economy will take off. a lot of pe
hands and let president obama, czar, king obama decide what to do for the whole country. by the way, for the kids, too. today is a snapshot in time and say we need to pay the bills. yes. but we don't need to run it up in the next 10 the 15 years. >> bob: it's much more dangerous to leave fair trade of the credit of the united states government in gutter if we don't raise the debt ceiling. he can, under lot of legal con industry tutionm lawyers who believe that there is a way for him to do this without -- >> dana: imagine if president bush tried that? >> bob: stop comparing what would happen -- >> dana: why? why? >> bob: in this case he can do it and he should. for the republicans to pay chicken with something important as fair, faith and credit is dangerous -- >> andrea: so why won't democrats talk about spending? they won a huge battle. now they say talk spending cuts. they don't want to. >> bob: they will talk spending cuts and they have to deal with entitlement. >> kimberly: do you agree at the least they're reluctant to do so? >> bob: at the very least? >> kimberly: they don't w
. >> and in his press conference, president obama quoted speaker john boehner from 2011. >> that would be a financial disaster, not only for our country but for the worldwide economy. i don't think it is a question that is even on the table. >> and the last question of his press conference, the president was asked if he may be more successful with some of the nuts you just heard from if he spent more quality time with them. >> you and your staff are too insular, that you don't socialize enough. >> this, of course, is one of the great myths of governing, that intractable problems, political problems, can somehow be solved over a card game and a couple of drinks. that has never, ever been the case nor will it ever be the case. >> i like speaker boehner personally. and you know, when we went out and played golf we had a great time. but that didn't get a deal done in 2011. >> the president actually had to remind the media that congressional behavior is the result of democracy. >> now if the american people feel strongly about these issues and they push hard and they reward, or don't reward
here in "the war room." have a great night. >> obama: let's do the right thing for them and this country that we love so much. thank you. let's sign these orders. >> all right very emotional appeal. we'll talk about that in a minute. plus yours truly in an ad for the nra of all things. brilliant idea that these lunatics had let's put more guns in school. wow, you got me on that. >> the media speaks for elites. america speaks for itself. >> cenk: i speak for the elites? i don't think they watch the show. they can start watching right now because it's go time. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> obama: we've got an obligation to try. >> the president today signed 23 executive orders. >> obama uses kids as human shields. >> some republicans say the white house effort is misguided. >> we're talking about gun safety and reducing gun violence not begun control. >> what republicans are upset mostly is stopping the legislation. >> he wants to go big on this. >> thethe national rifle association released a video. >> the national rifle association came out swinging. >> put more guns in sch
if they side with the president of the united states think about what president obama has done for the progressive movement in this country in the democratic party. how can you not stand with him on this? how much more information do these lawmakers need? have we not covered it enough? other democratic senators with high ratings from the national rifle association have also refused to say if they support the president's package. max baucus of montana, senator heidi heitkamp of north dakota, senator johnson of south dakota. senator donnelley of i7d ind. senator begich of alaska, senator manchin of west virginia, senator tester of montana. however, senator mark warner spoke out in favor of the president's plan and said he believes it has bipartisan support. those senators all have a or a-plus ratings from the national rifle association. reid has a b rating. these senators know they will lose their high rating and maybe become a target with the nra if they vote for a sensible assault weapons ban. you see, we had the assault weapons ban back in 1994, but we're so screwed up in wash
, tucker? i mean, 30% of the country believes that barack obama-- 36 believes he's hiding something about his background and early life and it's not all republicans. >> right. >> megyn: and the amount of independents also believe that. >> the same poll showed 36% of democrat think that bush was part of the 9/11 conspiracy theory. it's a complicated world and people use the theories to explain it when they don't understand it. the real mystery is not where obama is from, who cares, it's the motives in doing the things he does, so he says obamacare would reduce health care cost, it doesn't. raising taxes on the rich would balance the budget, it didn't. banning rifles with certain cosmetic features will prevent shootings, that's not true. and the real question is his motives and stated reasons don't make sense. people have a right to have answer and i don't know what it is. >> megyn: is it because he was born in kenya, a muslim, or the ability for like the bill clinton did, to break through and say i was born in hawaii. >> he is a different kind of president than we've ever seen. he's an afr
years ago was around the fact that barack obama had been elected the first black president of this country. how much of that sense still exists now four years later or how much of it is just part of the past and now we're moving on? >> i don't think it's part of the past and we're moving on. people are cherishing that and looking for the next four years to be stronger in terms of action and inexclusiveness for all people. i think it's going to be a good four years. >> how do you bring the congressmen together. >> what is a thing that's going to make people who don't really seem to necessarily know each other, i was surprised when i heard that the other day from a senator. senator mansion i think said it how do you bring people not only to know each other, but to want to work toward a common goal? >> well many of us are trying to bring people together. one of the things that i'm doing as part of an organization called faith in politics, every first weekend in march, we take a group of democrats and republicans, leade erers of the house and senate on a trip. we take them to a
address. when barack obama appeared four years ago the country did not know him, the beginning of his presidency. now for bet he and worse people know him. they know his strengths, weaknesses, the areas he's achieved and failed. it's more setting a brief mood for the country coming together. we have all this behind us. we're going to look ahead and then we'll get into the knitty gritty of our plans. >> second inaugurals are interesting things. some presidents have chosen to look backwards to talk about their accomplishments in the first term. others have not. george w. bush did not talk much about his first term but decided to make a bold foreign policy statement. what are the considerations that go into choosing what you say. >> when you look at the history of inaugural addresses there are some determined by the trajectory of history. john f. kennedy gave a speech that codified the moral commitments of the cold war. ronald reagan's first inaugural speech was an economic speech. the context was inflation which was a threat to the country at that time. but most of others, bush was like
the country or prioritize poverty. the bottom line is, president obama should do, number one, a major public policy address on the eradication of poverty. he starts out as the committee organizer, speaks eloquently about dr. king, has a bust of dr. king in the white house oval office, will be inaugurated on king's holiday. what are we going to do about pushing our president to give a major public policy address on the eradication of poverty? no. 2, then to call and convened a white house conference on the eradication of poverty by bringing the experts together, creed and national plan that can cut poverty in half in 10 years and eradicate it in 25. first, a public policy address and then convening to put together a national plan. we will talk about that tonight and as the public to help us and engage the president on this by going to our website a future withoutpoverty.ocm. >> yesterday president obama convened a large gathering. many of the people there were victims. the new kid around connecticut's -- survivors from the newtown, connecticut shootings as well as other mass killings. the vic
. that is a typical obama attempt to divide the country into two groups and try to make his the majority. i don't think that is going to work because our job is not to protect gun manufacturers. our job is not simply to protect our members. our mission and has been since 1871, is to make sure we protect the second amendment of the constitution. charles: before i let you go, yes or no, reiterating he was for the second amendment. does the nra stands by the idea that president obama will see abolish? >> yes. charles: we will talk to you again soon. we believe this will be one of the fights of the century. i want to interest -- introduce jenna diana, scott page, judge andrew napolitano is here and as always nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. you heard the interview. what your thoughts? >> this -- the nra is way off. no one is trying to take away the second amendment or guns. they're trying to control something that is out of control. there's no reason for high-capacity magazines or assault weapons. i went on line with my i had last night and was ready to buy one. is rid
in his cabinet than any other governor in the country, and yet, barack obama viciously attacked him and tried to say that somehow republicans are morally flawed because they don't like women. well, right now, this president has a major problem. none of those four-- these are major appointees that he has announced and none of them are women, and he's not -- we've got these pictures coming out of obama surrounded by white men. i've got them all over my website, it's hysterical and then they throw up a few with a few women, you know, conspicuously placed around him. this president is happy to claim to support women when it serves his political purposes. >> sean: and penny, i'm quoting women within his administration and kate is quoting women within the administration and charlie rangel is not a conservative, as a registered conservative-- and you're dismissing these comments? >> no, i'm not going to take anything away from janet napolitano, i think that's a very important position. second-- >> one, but that came after the criticism. >> no, it didn't. it came from the first administrati
